I would like to buy a new computer. The main purpose I would to use it for, is recording a bunch of old tapes (house, trance from Belgian DJ's 1994-2000) so I can burn them on a CD-R.
A lot of people on the net say that the Asus motherboard A7N8x, with the nForce2 Audio Processing Unit and Soundstorm AC-3 Encoder is a very good MB. But most of the people use there PC for games ! Can anyone give his opinion on this MB especially for audio applications ? I have my doubts on a chipset already on the MB (for audio). Do you have better results if you buy another MB (cheaper), but with a very good soundcard. I believe Soundblaster isn't that good as they say it is ...
The ASUS MB is made for Athlon XP CPU's. Can someone provide me information on what type of memory I have to use and other things that can make my computer a hell of a machine.
I can buy the ASUS MB for 186,86 $.
Thanks in advance
